HC Deb 26 November 1985 vol 87 c520W
Mr. Gould

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied with the steps taken by his Department to warn the public of the dangers of contaminated wine; and if he is satisfied that the action so far taken against vendors has provided effective protection to the public.

Mrs. Fenner

Yes. Both the trade and the public would seem to have taken notice of the advice issued by myself and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services. The wine trade has co-operated fully with us in this matter and I have had no reports of any proceedings being taken by local authorities against traders for offering contaminated wine for sale for human consumption.
